About us


P&MS a new Technical Service and Services provider   

A solid partner for your business

With this letter we would like to introduce you to Propulsion & Maritime Services. This maritime advice & service provider was founded by

Johan Verlaan.

In the more than 25 years of experience in international field services for the maritime sector, I started make  myself useful as a service technician for (gas) engines in the Benelux and later as a propulsion specialist to be used worldwide. This varied from project management from new construction projects to conversions and major repair work as well as to provide service to Control Pitch Propellers (CPP), Azimuth Thrusters (incl. Retractable), Bow / Stern Tunnel Thrusters, Propeller / Propeller Blade repairs and Propeller-shaft Sealing systems. As a logical consequence, work was also carried out to related products and systems, such as steering systems. All this for the merchant vessel, navy, luxury yachts, off-shore vessels, short sea shipping, dredgers, coast guard, tugboats, fishing boats, cruise vessels and inland shipping. All this on behalf of shipowners, technical management offices, insurances companies or shipyards.


I also gained a wide range of management experience as; Propulsion Service Manager in Dubai, Senior Quality Manager in a propulsion production factory in China, Senior Project Manager for global projects, General Manager Services for the Maritime and the Energy Sector in Nigeria and as a superintendent to supervise global docking and ships repairs. Finally I was the responsible for a company who made the engineering and production of manoeuvring systems in the Netherlands.


However, because I was regularly confronted with the fact that it was always more challenging for shipowners and customers to obtain quality, good, reliable and competing services. Has the idea arose to share my technical knowledge, know-how, organizational and management skills with cultural experiences with the maritime sector. Due to the contribution of P & MS, customers will no longer only depend on the major players within the propulsion world. And again they will experience flexible and good old fashion SERVICES.
